Holy Week Geography


Today is Holy Tuesday, sometimes called "Busy Tuesday."  On this day, Jesus taught in the temple and was challenged by his opponents in a final theological onslaught.  Jesus, of course, rebuffed all of their challenges, pronounced condemnation on the scribes and Pharisees for their hypocrisy, and warned of the destruction of Jerusalem and of the end of the world.  See?  Busy.

You might be interested in a map of Jerusalem which shows the places that Jesus went during Holy Week.  You can find a Google Map of Jerusalem here.  It is interactive, pinpointing the particular locations of each event.  Unfortunately, you can only zoom in so far, so it is not exactly a street level view of things.  But it gives you some idea of where Jesus was throughout the week.  I suspect that this is even cooler if you have been to Jerusalem.
